CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Robotics & Automation (R&A) Technologies have the potential to transform
and improve the lives of humanity by addressing the world’s toughest
challenges. The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society - Special Interest
Group on Humanitarian Technology (RAS-SIGHT) is engaging the academic
and non-academic community to propose viable solutions in R&A to address
relevant world problems through several initiatives that include
challenges in robotics conferences, funding projects, establishment of
collaboration networks with academia, industry, and governments.
RAS-SIGHT is soliciting proposals that when implemented would improve
the quality of life for the beneficiaries. Some important points worth
- The problem that you propose to solve should utilize robotics and
- It is strongly encouraged that the solution be developed and deployed
with active involvement from the community or the end-users that it is
intended to benefit
- Sustainability beyond the completion of the project will be a key
